Metal Craft Worker Village at Dhamrai:
If you a craft work lover or interested what art work means, you must visit Metal Craft worker village near Dhamrai. It will take around 1.5 hours to reach there from Dhaka and visiting the places will enrich your experience of Bangladesh as you will find the worker designing the art work in bear hand using old wax technique in metal craft. I would recommend to buy some which would help them to survive as due to low sale most of the worker and their family left the business. You will find some old homes and temples around the place.
